“A Conversation for Families About Digital Wellness and Mental Health” May 24 at Courtenay Elementary Community School

“A Conversation for Families About Digital Wellness and Mental Health” through Family Smart BC

As parents It’s not easy to know how much time on technology is too much and how to set boundaries that don’t create conflict. Join us for a conversation with a digital wellbeing expert to learn some practical solutions to our everyday concerns and challenges around our kids’ use of screens and their mental health.

Join us for a free watch party hosted by Carolyn McCarthy of FamilySmart. We will provide a pizza dinner and child minding as we watch a video on setting digital boundaries for your child, followed by a discussion.

Free @ Courtenay Elementary on Wednesday May 24th from 5-7 pm

Please register here.

As a Parent Peer Support Worker in the Comox Valley, Carolyn McCarthy connects with parents to offer emotional support, information, resources and help navigating the services available. She comes to the role with her own lived experience of supporting a child with mental health struggles so she gets it. Parents don’t need to defend, explain, or justify because chances are the feelings they have felt in their home, she has felt in hers. Parents can connect with Carolyn in person, over the phone, virtually through video chat or through email.

In addition to Parent Peer Support, FamilySmart offers support through Youth Peer Support, an extensive video and resource library, monthly events and workshops. All our services are free and have no waitlists.
